Where and when

Bologna, July 2015

Francesco De Gregori and Irene Grandi filled to capacity like ever before a heated Piazza Maggiore to celebrate the 70 years of CNA Bologna.

The concert took place on July 16, when the Artisan Confederation, the most popular in Italy (there are 13,000 members in the Emilian capital city alone) celebrated its anniversary with events scheduled already starting at the beginning of July.

Ad aprire le celebrazioni, il progetto fotografico pensato ad hoc da Maurizio Galimberti. Il fotografo, famoso per i suoi ritratti a mosaico, (tra cui quello celeberrimo di Johnny Deep che finì sulla copertina di Time Magazine) ha scelto 30 artigiani bolognesi da interpretare con le sue polaroid. Ne è uscita una mostra che ha raccontato così il variegato mondo di CNA, per dieci giorni da guardare con il naso all’insù sotto il portico del Pavaglione.

Then, to celebrate the Association’s involvement in renovating the Nettuno fountain in Bologna, on two nights there was a video projection on the facade of the Salaborsa covering all stages in the history of the statue by Giambologna. 


To conclude, there was the mid-July evening event hosted by Giorgio Comaschi and opened by Valerio Veronesi and Cinzia Barbieri, respectively president and secretary of CNA Bologna, who in ten minutes summed up the most salient stages of the seventy years of the Association’s life, through a fascinating set of images.

Last but not least, people in the square sang along for two hours with the two Italian music stars. The universe of CNA Bologna, on the occasion of its seventieth anniversary, was also portrayed in a blog full of news, history and mementos.
